I forgot about this driver jumping in lately.

But here is the fixup and the rationale:

devm_of_led_classdev_register() API has been useless from the beginning,
since it was just an initial portion of work aiming at adding some
generic DT parser. The actual parser had not been added up to this
commit which also switches the API:

devm_of_led_classdev_register(struct device *parent,
struct device_node *np,
struct led_classdev *led_cdev);


devm_led_classdev_register_ext(struct device *parent,
struct led_classdev *led_cdev,
struct led_init_data *init_data)

To not break the bisectibility The remaining users of
devm_of_led_classdev_register are being fixed by this commit to use the

+#define devm_led_classdev_register(parent, led_cdev) \
+ devm_led_classdev_register_ext(parent, led_cdev, NULL)

leds-max77650.c is the one that was omitted, so I've just applied
the following fix to this commit:

diff --git a/drivers/leds/leds-max77650.c b/drivers/leds/leds-max77650.c
index 04738324b3e6..5a14f9775b0e 100644

and melded it with the original one to not break the bisect.

If you have any doubts please let me know.
